Vintage Quiz



I found this week's quiz on Facebook (so some of you might have already seen it). 

Bet You Can't Name Every One Of These Vintage Objects. Can You?


Don't let the name fool you. This is pretty easy. I was giving this half my attention on my phone just before I went to sleep one night, and I got 100%. 

I'd warn of difficulty to the younguns, but I don't think I really have any readers who are all that young. (Which just means if you do poorly, you can blame it on your youth.) Good luck.

  2. I got 100% too. I mean, they didn't even remove the name from the Gameboy. So I'm pretty sure I got that one right XD

  3. I have to try this at home on my desktop computer. I can't advance it further than question two. Gives me the options for question three but I still see picture for question number two. It looks like a fun quiz.

  4. 100%. Good grief, some of these you could answer just by looking at the device, like the Game Boy that said Game Boy (I did know it, though - my then young son owned a Game Boy!) Ditto for the Playstation.

  5. Well, I got 100%, but I actually had no idea what some of them were. Like the kids' toy with all the rubber bristles - no idea it had a name. There were others I did by elimination. Maybe they just looked different in different countries? But it was fun to do.

    I grew up in a country town with only 2 tv stations, so we weren't on the cutting edge when it came to some of those things. Because I am definitely old enough!

    1. No, it doesn't. I maintain it wasn't a hard quiz. But good job.

  10. What! I can't believe the score 100%!!!
    "You're A Vintage Expert"! it says!

    No, I didn't know all the answers! Maybe at least 10 of them I guessed. Actually, it's 100% of my guesswork going right, for the first time ever in my life!

    Too good to be true, actually. I saw the retake tab, and decided to take a retest.

    To quite a few questions for which I knew the correct answer, I gave the wrong answer, like for typewriter, floppy disc, etc.

    Guess, how much I scored - 100%.

    A good quiz... But, definitely something wrong with algorithm behind the quiz!

    The quiz also doesn't show which ones I got wrong, and what the right answers to them are!

    1. Interesting issues. Hmmm... I think I'll pass because it will probably depress this old lady. :)

    2. Looks like you'll get 100% no matter what (besides, it is pretty easy).

  11. How funny! Knew them all and didn't even have to guess (except that one that might have been a coffee maker or a toaster! Hmmm...) And as your friend Pradeep says, you seem to get 100% no matter what you choose. Ha ha ha! Nice break from all the serious stuff going on.

  12. I got 100%, but it seems like everyone does - I didn't actually recognize everything even if I'd heard the word before. Gameboy and PlayStation were a nice giveaway though!
